Inframail FTP Server NLST Command Remote Overflow
High Nessus Plugin ID 18587
SynopsisThe remote FTP server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack.
DescriptionThe remote host is running the FTP server component of Inframail, a commercial suite of network servers from Infradig Systems.
According to its banner, the installed version of Inframail suffers from a buffer overflow vulnerability that arises when the FTP server component processes an NLST command with an excessively long argument (around 102400 bytes). Successful exploitation will cause the service to crash and may allow arbitrary code execution.
SolutionUpgrade to Inframail 7.12 or later.
